"I am glad to be in Baku. Although we have had phone conversations in recent months, today we met in person and exchanged opinions," Minister for Foreign Affairs of the Federal Republic of Germany Annalena Baerbock said at a press conference held after meeting with Minister of Foreign Affairs of Azerbaijan Jeyhun Bayramov today, APA reports.

German top diplomat noted that the South Caucasus is an interesting region for Europe. One of the reasons for this is the economic field.

According to her, building trust and faith is important for conflict resolution.

Minister recalled that she met with Armenian residents who voluntarily left Garabagh in Armenia: "They hope that they can return. It is important that Azerbaijan provides a chance for these people to return. We need peace in this region. A continuous peace process is also in the interest of Azerbaijan. The issue of territorial integrity of both countries should be based on a peace agreement. I am glad to hear the same position on both sides."
